Inspiration Monday

I hope you had an amazing holiday season!
This week's inspiration Monday model from Two Birds is Heidi Klum.


I am not in the mood for blue jeans, so I wore a down puffer jacket with a cargo vest and light grey jeans.

Inspiration Monday

Today's inspiration over at Two Birds is Olivia Palermo, with a denim-on-denim look.
Actually, I already showed a similar post with the 'Texas tuxedo look'  in October. This time I just added a more wintery vibe and wore a jacket and a turtleneck sweater under my shirt.

Menswear Inspired

One more outfit that was inspired by the men's fashion of 1910's & 1920's, and the British TV series 'Downton Abbey', or maybe  "The Great Gatsby' movie, or any other movie about those decades. Since it is just an inspirational outfit, I don't do an exact copycat of men's outfits from that era. I'm only borrowing some of the details.

Inspirational Monday

Our inspiration from Two Birds today is Carey Mulligan
My outfit is kind of far from the original. 
She wore black pants - I wore black leather pants. She wore a striped cardigan, I wore a striped scarf that gave me shape close to the one on her outfit. 
Also, Carey Mulligan's outfit looks more classy and elegant, I look more like a "let's rock-n-roll".person.

Hoodie with jacket

Just my usual mix of easy winter basics.
I love the visual effect that a hoodie and jacket give each other. The sporty and relaxed vibe of  the hoodie mutes the blazer's strictness. On the other hand, the formal look of the jacket always adds a little more composure to the hoodie. Also, a hood by itself is a fun and practical detail for those people who don't want to wear a hat in winter.

Inspiration Monday

I'm back to Inspiration Monday. About year ago  I found a Two Birds blog link with kind of an interesting idea - Inspiration Monday. Every week they pick and post a picture for inspiration. Then you can post the link to your version of the inspiration on their post. For today our inspiration was Jennifer Aniston, who wore a plaid dress with black coat, and opaque tights with knee-high boots.
Since I don't have a checkered dress I switched it for a striped one and added over-the-knee boots.
In this outfit I went to my mother-in-law's birthday.

Also this year are the last photos that you can see me with long hair.

Borrowed from Men

Continuing the theme of outfits that were inspired by men's characters' clothing from the British TV series 'Downton Abbey'.
A previous 'Downton Abbey' post can be seen here. Regarding that posting, I wasn't sure what inspired me more - the menswear from the British TV series or the Ralph Lauren F/W 2012 collection based on that drama. This time I even thought about King Edward VIII's clothing.

Getting Cozy

This just a casual look I threw on to run errands - simple, comfortable.
